Brit Awards After Party photos

  • Alt

Gorgeous photos of Tom attending one of last night's Brit Awards after-parties, the Warner Music After Party held at The Savoy Hotel, have been uploaded in hi-res to Just Jared. He was wrongly named on Getty, which is why I didn't spot them before. 

Tom tweeted his attendance before he went, intriguingly teasing us about using it as research for a new job, although that was probably a joke.

I Want Candy: Sugar Magazine interview 2007

  • Alt

This old interview with Sugar Magazine from May 2007, promoting the film I Want Candy resurfaced recently, with a photo we haven't seen before.

I would possibly not put much stock behind the answers in the interview itself. It is an old interview, and they do read like words may have been put into Tom's mouth. Apart from maybe 'carrot-gate'.

Radio Times rising star photo

This lovely photo of Tom can be found in the latest Radio Times magazine, as a result of someone appreciating his performance as Philip in Lewis: And the Moonbeams Kiss the Sea. Of note is that the second series of Monroe is mentioned and apparently due to return this summer.

Happy Ever Afters: amazing Tom interview for IFTN.ie

There is a wonderfully insightful interview with Tom, Stephen Burke and Jade Yourell for IFTN.ie. Read the full interview on the IFTN website. 

So far so straightforward, but what was the experience like on the other side of the casting couch, that of our actors?

Happy Ever Afters: Independent.ie interview

Q&A: Tom Riley on bono's bed and a very drunk best man

Describe Happy Ever Afters for us?

It's a screwball romantic comedy about two couples that marry for the wrong reasons and end up in the same hotel for their wedding reception. It's in the style of the 50s, with a very modern Irish sensibility.

The movie was filmed in Wicklow this year. How was it living here and working with a predominantly Irish cast and crew?

Happy Ever Afters: Entertainment.ie interview

"I was at a wedding where there was a partition dividing two parties", explains Burke when asked where he got the idea for the film. "Initially that's what the script was, it was about two weddings divided by a moveable partition and it would get moved back. In the end that ended up being changed in the script and it ended up just being two wings of a hotel."

Happy Ever Afters: interview snippets

On shooting the film:

Tom Riley chimes in. "We don't tend to overrun schedules, which is unusual. In these jobs, it's low budget and you pack a lot into the day, so it's the kind of film where you think, 'Oh my God, it's going to go over 20 minutes or half an hour. Everyone is going to have to be paid more. It's not going to work'. In England, everyone would be running around, terrified that was going to happen and shouting at each other. Not here."
